CLASSIC AND VINTAGE CARS IN SOUTH AFRICA


Powered From Behind
In the early 1930’s, Central European car designers believed that a rear engine would suit a small car best. This was because it permitted an aerodynamically-efficient body design and it was thought to be cheaper to build. Mercedes-Benz built a few experimental rear-engine cars and even a three-cylinder Diesel, but they proved costly to build. The 130H, with its engine at the rear, made its debut in 1934. It was the first Mercedes-Benz with a central tubular frame and like the 170, had independent suspension all round and hydraulic brakes on all four wheels. Sales were disappointingly low and production was terminated in 1936. At least three of these cars were imported to South Africa but weren’t too popular due to price. This vehicle was purchased for the Museum from the Chrysler agents in Cape Town - traded in originally by a Dr. Du Toit.
